Marcellin College Randwick

Aeterna Non Caduca | The Eternal Not The Transitory

Welcome

 

It is with much excitement and anticipation that I welcome you to Marcellin College Randwick. This is the 94th year of quality Marist education at this College and so we begin our year with a sense of gratitude for the work that has gone before us, along with a sense of great hope and expectation for the year to come.

Marcellin College is well known in the broader community as being a welcoming and hospitable place; promoting a strong Marist charism; achieving outstanding academic results; having a talented and committed staff; and being a College where boys so obviously have a great love for and loyalty to their school.

In perusing the website you will see regular reference to ‘The Marcellin Graduate’. This document sums up the aspirations we have for the boys who are educated here. It gives direction in our endeavour to provide an outstanding contemporary learning environment within the framework of our Catholic tradition.

Marcellin College is proudly a Marist school, named after the founder of the Marist Brothers, St Marcellin Champagnat. The story of Champagnat is an inspiring one and we are a part of his very significant legacy of educational institutions around the globe. Here in Randwick, we are fortunate to have a number of retired Marist Brothers living in our local Marcellin community.

Each year, the College has a scriptural theme to provide a particular focus for our community. The theme for this year comes from Luke (12:48)

"To whom much is given, much will be required.”

Staff will refer to this passage and break it open a little during the course of the year. 

Again, welcome to our website and I trust you will find it helpful in navigating to the relevant information you are seeking.

The Marcellin Graduate

They arrive as young boys dependent very much on their parents and their teachers; they depart as adults in the eyes of the law. Young men - citizens of the world. There is an impression that the Marcellin boy is cocooned on the eastern side of Anzac Parade. The challenge for him is that he sees beyond that into the broader world. He is a global citizen. He is called to reach out to others, to let go of any preoccupation with self. His destiny is, as
St Marcellin Champagnat foretold, to be a good Christian and good citizen.
